TNA star Jeff Hardy is the latest wrestler to pledge to donate his brain to the CTE Center at Boston University and the Concussion Legacy Foundation after he passes away.
In an interview with Ring Rust Radio, Hardy said Nash’s decision to donate his brain influenced him.
“My wife read where Kevin Nash announced that and I said, “Oh my God I have to do that.” I for sure will do whatever it takes and I would love to be a part of that. It’s a huge serious issue in wrestling,” Hardy said. “I’ve rung my bells so many times especially back in the day when chair shots to the head were legal. My goodness, I took so many of those. Luckily, I’m only aware of about two or three concussions that I have had but there’s really no way of telling how many overall. When Nash announced he was doing that I was on board and I didn’t know that RVD did as well. That really inspired me to do the same thing.”
Rob Van Dam, Kevin Nash and Mick Foley have also all agreed to donate their brains.
